Installing the plug-in

whatap output plugin

You can use the Telegraf's WhaTap output plug-in (TCP) to forward metrics collected in Telegraf to the WhaTap collection server. The collected data can be checked in the WhaTap's project.


Telegraf plug-ins must have been installed and configured directly on the service.

Installation procedure


For the detailed builds, see the Telegraf github page.

Under ${GOPATH}/src/ proceed with the build with the Makefile.

  1. Proceed with the dependency installation. Dependency installation uses the go dep. Accordingly, the go dep must have been installed first.

    # make deps
  2. Build the executable file. Under the ${GOPATH}/bin directory, the executable file (telegraf) is generated.

    # make go-install
  3. If the installation package is required, you can create it with the make package command. Proceed with cross-compilation to generate the package files for each operating system.

    # make package
